[3DS][News][08-27-2017] As suspected "arm9 and kernal 11 exploits" are still abundant on 11.4 - Smea Tweets "Waiting for Tendy to Stop Supporting the 3DS" - Does this mean Years until Softmodding 11.4? Twitter A-blaze


Yesterday Smea confirmed in a Tweet - what we thought was true all along - that devs were holding out on Releasing kernal exploits for Nintendo 3DS' on 11.4 Firmware.

This might come as a suprise to some, but much speculation was done regarding when a new exploit would be released for 11.4.
  • Some thought maybe an 11.5 update would accompany the new2dsxl, but the device has  since been released in Australia & New Zealand for almost a month now & its confirmed to be on 11.4.0
This gave us a little sigh of relief as DSiwarehax and ntrboothax still work on the n2dsxl 

- meaning that we will always be able to CFW those devices in those aspects (until dsiware isn't available)

Shortly after this news of dsiware and ntrboothax not being patched on 2dsxl, Nintendo released this statement- 

(original article by ign.com) View it here: IGN ARTICLE


I can only assume this statement has scared the devs away from releasing anything too soon, as it might be the next target to get patched on an Upcoming 11.5 or even 11.6 update from Nintendo

Check the latest firmware released by Nintendo here, before anywhere else: http://www.n3ds.info

Although it is a scary thought, that one day the 3DS wont be like the WiiU or the Wii- able to be softmodded super easily- like it was so easily just mere months ago.

- It is this scary thought that leads me to believe that the best decision is to hold off on releasing these exploits. it would be an absolute shame to lose them in the short future (like with 11.2 and 11.3)

Another part of me says maybe nintendo already knows of some of these exploits and will patch them anyways on upcoming firmware releases, making this whole point of holding out on release of exploits null and void.

Also this apprehension to releases hax in fear of patching also leads me to believe the exploit well is running dry for the 3DS (mere speculation and I am prepared to put my foot in my mouth)

One last note, although nedwill tweeted about waiting for the EOL - when he heard Tendy was planning on Supporting the 3DS well into 2018 he tweeted this.. (maybe meaning that waiting just isn't worth it, even if eventually losing soundhax2)

Nintendo DMCA's Every Mainstream Rom and ISO from a Popular Backup Website (Mario,Pokemon,Fire Emblem, Megaman, Kirby) + MH:XX JPN Disappears from the titlekey site


If you've been on emuparadise lately, you might have noticed messages like this under every mainstream title Nintendo owns, 

It turns out Nintendo has DMCA'd a bunch of older Generation Consoles/Handheld Games
Removing Entire Series' like:

  • POKEMON 
  • MARIO
  • FIRE EMBLEM 
  • KIRBY
  • MEGAMAN


What could this possibly mean? 

Well other then us not being able to get all the games we know and love easily in backup form
It might mean that Nintendo is gearing up for a Massive Release on the Nintendo eShop, both for Switch and 3DS - to hopefully attract buyers to the n2dsxl.

This would also make sense with Monster Hunter Double Cross being removed from the Title keys websites, and with its Release scheduled for America, maybe Nintendo is getting rid of all traces of the games it wants people to legally acquire.

Update on MH:XX-  (I've been informed of transfering all your save data over to the USA Version when its released IS POSSIBLE - so maybe Nintendo wants to Prevent that as well.

This doesn't exactly make sense as to why they would remove the JAPANESE version but it seems with the English Translation Patch being already at v3, there might be too many users from American already Playing. (see above for update regarding Save data transfer)

Its also possible they need to do some sort of server maintanence to get the SWITCH and 3DS to work together for MH:XX - just speculation - You can Watch my Video on it here:




TITLES REMOVED FROM FREESHOP:

Monster Hunter XX




When I Learn more I will let you guys know.
If you know of any titles that have been removed please Tweet me @GameInCanada

[3DS][News][Release] Luma3DS v8.0 - Introducing "InputRedirect Support" (now with C-STICK!) - Homebrew Launcher Support (no payloads) - Built In "NTR Like" Menu Dubbed "Rosalina"



Luma 3DS was just updated to go along with boot9strap v1.2 - there isn't a ton of technical features worth mentioning, but many new things implemented for the Daily User. Such as:

  • Built In Input Redirection Support - just from having Luma Running - no more InputProc.cia

The amazing thing about this is that InputRedirectionClient now support C-STICK Functionality as well as the Extra ZR and ZL Buttons (this new feature only works on new3DS)

There is also:

  • Built in Home 
  • Built in Power Button 

Both implemented into the User Interface!
Pretty cool stuff we are now on the verge of fully controlling the 3DS with a Xinput Controller!

New InputRedirectionClient


The Homebrew Launcher No Longer Requires payloads to run!
Hopefully no more waiting for payloads to drop! (not that we aren't grateful to smealum - payloads will still be needed for non-cfw users)

Holding Down+Select+ L will load an NTR style menu - where you can:

  • Checkout Running Proccesses
  • View running Patches (layered FS)
  • Take a Screenshot
  • Enabled Disable Clock+L2 on the fly (new3ds only)
